Holly Shrimpton Funds Medic Salary at BiZoHa Nursery School - Kahendero

Posted: Wed, February 10, 2016 | By: Kahendero Humanist School

​Holly Shrimpton has donated $500 to pay the annual salary of the medic who will take care of children attending BiZoHa Nursery School in Kahendero.

The medic will work at Jane Shrimpton Clinic, named after Holly’s mother, who recently passed away.

Holly and her surviving three brothers donated funds last week, to build the clinic. Construction will start in March 2016.

Funds to construct the school itself have been 50% acquired, in only one month. Approximately $4,000 more is needed to build the preschool.

Jane Shrimpton Clinic will alleviate the diseases that plague children in Kahendero, a small fishing village on the banks of Lake George in western Uganda. The population here is afflicted with malaria, cholera, peptic ulcer disease (caused by malnutrition), parasitic worm infections, bilharzia, respiratory tract infection, gastro-intestinal infections, and other maladies.

Thank you Holly! Brighter Brains Institute will be providing images of the clinic construction, and regular reports from the medic will be available at the end of each school term.
